    Overall a very happy experience.

    Senior Systems Analyst/Developer (Former Employee) Valhalla, NY

    ProsGreat benefits, a beautiful campus, good work/life balance.

    ConsEmployee cliques are hard to deal with; no opportunity to be treated as an individual - must be treated as a robot in accordance with the Union rules & regs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn some empathy, understanding and the need for each employee to be treated individually. Watch out for double standards based upon how liked/disliked any given employee is by their manager.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Bureaucratic Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Peekskill, NY

    ProsYou can take credit courses for a minimal fee. There are some distinguished experts invited to speak at the college.

    ConsThere is little room for advancement. There is no recognition given to individual performers. Upper Management wants everyone to function as a team so they can take credit for their staff's ideas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn skills that improve the chances that valuable staff members will be engaged in their work and will stay with the college for a substantial period of time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
